Austin Water has new assistant director

Friday, May 15, 2020 by Jo Clifton

Austin Water Director Greg Meszaros introduced his new assistant director for engineering, Shay Ralls Roalson, to the Austin Water Oversight Committee at Wednesday’s meeting. Roalson told the committee she has 27 years of experience in the municipal water and wastewater business, including the past 10 years with HDR Engineering. Roalson has been with the city for just five weeks now, so all of her meetings have been online, but she told the committee she was delighted to join the city water utility. According to information provided by the city, Roalson “led an engineering group with 59 professional staff and had overall responsibility for strategic planning, business development, client management, staff development, and financial performance” at HDR. Prior to her work at HDR, she worked for AECOM and Camp Dresser & McKee.
